      • The overuse of the term hater grinds my ******* gears. If you don't think everything about something is the greatest ever, you're labeled a hater. Shut the **** up with this stupid term or learn to use it correctly.

                      You won't find those on here at least...I never let an opportunity to make a Bill Polian pass me by.

                        I am more sick of the irrational Peyton Manning hate. More of that here than excuses for him from what I've seen. And really it's more the irrational overreaction of people who are apparently sick of Manning lovers. I am in a weird middle ground in that Colts fans think I am too negative about Manning but Manning haters think anything positive I say about him is just me being a homer. For whatever reason he is very polarizing and it's pretty stupid.

                          It's simple. While Tom Brady is as beautiful as a man can be, Peyton Manning looks like a weirdly deformed left testicle. Thus, the irrational hatred towards him

                          • For me, I can't stand the constant excuses from the media. It drives me towards the irrational hate side. If someone somewhere would just admit that Peyton is indeed fallible, I'd ease off the attack.

                            But for as long as the Colts struggles are portrayed as no fault of Mannings, I just want to RAGE when people talk to defend him. It has to be a little his fault...if he gets the credit for winning when has a healthy team around him, he has to be somewhat at fault when they're losing even with the talent decline due to injury. He can have it both ways.

                              There is some truth to that. Some people do bend over backwards to ensure Manning takes no blame and that is stupid. The truth is somewhere in between the two extremes, as in most things.

                                For me, it really has to do with the foo-foo brand of football they play. If Manning had gone to the Steelers and won a gazillion Superbowls with a balanced attack and good defense, he'd probably be amongst my favorite players ever - and I can't stand the Steelers. There's just something disgustingly finesse about him - from his curling up into the fetal position to avoid sacks, the "flinch" Sunday Night, the no-huddle spread, crying for a flag instead of going for the tackle on his pick six...it just represents everything that I hate about football, and that finesse culture has permeated that entire organization. I'm sure that's attributable to both Manning and Polian (especially when you consider the team he built in Buffalo), and I can't stand either one of them.

                                That's why I've cooled in my Brady worship as well. Since ~06, the Pats tried to be like the Colts: showcase their QB, pad his stats, and play foo-foo football. And guess what? It's led to postseason failures recently. They're finally getting back to having balance and playing to their team's strengths instead of Belichick and Brady trying to prove how awesome they are to everyone.

                                As you said, how much blame lies with him is between the two extremes. He's not 100% at fault for his postseason failures. I (and the rest of the "haters") try to drill this in, though, because he is given 100% of the accolades when things go right. If he's such a genius for calling his own plays and turning nobodies into perennial 1000 yard receivers, then he should receive a proportional amount of blame when things go wrong, but he never does.
